Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nature's Recipe Healthy Skin Stew Vegetarian Recipe Cuts In Gravy with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is water sufficient for processing. Water of course only provides moisture, a necessary component of wet products.

The second ingredient is carrot. Carrots are an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

The third ingredient is pea protein. Pea protein is produced by removing the starchy parts of peas. Pea protein is considered controversial because it provides a substantial plant based protein boost. This boost is undesirable because plant based protein is typically lower in biological value when compared to meat based proteins.

The fourth ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is soybean protein concentrate. Soybean protein concentrate is produced by removing the water soluble carbohydrates from soybeans. The inclusion of non-meat protein typically degrades the overall quality of protein in the recipe. This degradation is due to the inferior amino acid profile of plant based proteins.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nature's Recipe Healthy Skin Stew Vegetarian Recipe Cuts In Gravy are not as important as the first five ingredients.

However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Nature's Recipe recipe.

Next we have soybean protein isolate. Soy protein isolate is a highly refined/purified form of soy bean protein. Roughly 90% of soy protein isolate is protein. The inclusion of non-meat protein typically degrades the overall quality of protein in the recipe. This degradation is due to the inferior amino acid profile of plant based proteins.

The remaining ingredients in this Nature's Recipe Healthy Skin Stew recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product does not contain any meat. Although we understand this property is by design, we do not recommend feeding this product without consulting your veterinarian.
